MadameRuiz Profile picture Beethoven frieze, after the work of Gustav Klimt

The Beethoven frieze is a painting by Viennese artist Gustav Klimt, aka the Golden Boy. He painted this work in 1902 for the14th Vienna Secession exhibition. The frieze was applied directly to the wall. Meanwhile, the Beethoven frieze is permanently visible in the Secession building, which is located at the edge of Karlsplatz and the beginning of Naschmarkt in Vienna. It was where the artists of the Secession movement, the Austrian variant of Art Nouveau, gathered.

The frieze illustrates the eternal search for happiness in a stormy world. However, our happiness is threatened by both external danger and our internal weaknesses and insecurities. To the left, we see a gorilla illustrating Typhoeus, the personification of typhus, a disease that claimed many victims in many European cities in the 19th century, including Vienna.
To the left of Typhoeus we see 3 gorgons, exotic women with golden snakes in their hair. We know these characters from Greek mythology. The most famous sister is Medusa. They turned the people who looked at them into stone. Above them we see faces depicting death and disease. To the right of the gorilla we see the personification of lust, sensuality and intemperance personified by 3 women.

The work, which falls under the movement Art Nouveau, or Jugendstil and Wiener Sesession, is decorative and graceful in nature and bears Klimt's characteristic gold.

I am MadameRuiz, and am an artist by profession. I hope to delight you with my work. Here in my profile, or on your wall :) Both are fun!

Will you let me know what you think of my work? I would love to get in touch with you. Also when you have one of my works in your home I am very curious about the end result in your interior.

I love everything that has to do with art, culture and creativity. Experiencing, creating, teaching and communicating. Through language, image, non-verbal and through the musical voice.

I became known for my commissioned ink portraits. My work was first shown to a large audience in the program VTWonen Weer verliefd op je huis (February 2021). I make many ink portraits of and for individuals; from pregnancy portraits, wedding portraits, child portraits, love portraits and family portraits to portraits of pets such as dogs, cats, horses and birds. These ink portraits are all handmade by the way, drawn and painted with east indian ink on watercolor paper.

In my shop at work on the wall you can order my Digital Art. Because I normally work almost exclusively on commission, my autonomous art via Digital Art is really a wonderful experimental outlet. This also means that I keep experimenting with painting techniques and collage techniques using Photoshop. Although I love to experiment, quality comes first
